Equine gut health is more than just colic, ulcers and diarrhea. When the gut is damaged by stressors such as disease, exercise or travel, Leaky Gut Syndrome (LGS) can occur — allowing pathogens and toxins in the gut to pass into the blood stream. LGS can lead to systemic inflammation that negatively impacts performance, behavior and overall horse health. The best way to prevent LGS or to heal a leaky gut is through good nutrition and attention to gut health.
ButiPEARL™ Z EQ is the first product of its kind on the market providing two important nutrients, butyric acid (butyrate) and zinc, throughout the gastrointestinal tract (GIT) of your horse. These two nutrients help to strengthen the tight junctions that maintain the GIT barrier and support your horse's immune system — leading to less LGS.
